EMA leaders to be honored

Governor Robert Bentley will take steps Tuesday to recognize the valuable service provided by members of Emergency Management Agency offices across the state as he prepares to make a special proclamation in Montgomery.

Bentley will recognize the service of Alabama’s emergency management leaders, meteorologists, and others who prepare and guide the state through severe weather events during a special ceremony beginning at 10 a.m. at Alabama’s State Capital building.

At that time, Bentley will also declare the week of February 19-24 as Severe Weather Awareness Week in Alabama.

Leaders from the Alabama Emergency Management Agency, the National Weather Service, and broadcast meteorologists will be among those joining Governor Bentley for the proclamation.
